    Stealth Grey Precision Rifle Build

    Took advantage of the onset of offseason and a spring storm in the mountains yesterday to clean up my workshop. Pulled out my parts and lined them up to see if there was anything I was forgetting as I wait 3-6 weeks for the JP barrel kit ordered last week.

    Its an Aero Precision Stealth Grey Monthly Builders Kit from last fall with Gen II enhanced upper receiver with Stealth Grey Magpul PRS and grip. Barrel kit will be 22" JP in BlackTeflon with black thermal dissipater, plus black Teflon JP competition compensator, JP enhanced bolt, JP low mass bolt carrier and JP Gen II silent capture spring.

    Bushnell Elite Tactical XRS 4.5-30x50 with H59 reticle is arriving this afternoon from when Midway decided to blow a few out the door for $1249 last week.

    The only things missing are a Giessele SSA-E (which got hijacked by a 22 Nosler build), charging handle (glad I checked my parts - the 22 Nosler hijacked that too!), scope rings and a bipod (where I might as well go all in with an Atlas).

    A Geissele sale at Primary Arms is as easy to predict as a Chuck Schumer fit of outrage. They call it an EGGSTREME sale, but its pretty much the same sale they have at least 12 times a year. SSA-E ordered up along with a POF "Rattler" charging handle. Only thing left is to find a reason to buy anything other than Aero Precision Ultralight scope mounts while the JP Enterprises factory cogs turn.....

    I have 2 of the Aero scope mounts and love them. They have held strong with my VX-R Patrol 3-9x40 (extended mount) and my SWFA 1-4x24 (standard mount) through some typical bumps and knocks over the past couple years. I have all the confidence in the world that they're tough enough for my uses.

    You'll probably want the SPR mount for proper eye relief with that scope.

    Thanks Drew - I probably would have ordered the extendeds which I have on my FDE carbine with an ERS and after checking, I definitely need the SPRs. I have a few Aero rings and I've been looking for anyone who has something bad to say about them (other than the PIA leveling) and I just can't find anyone. It just seems wrong paying so little for something so light given what some rings can cost, but they do what they're supposed to do. I don't know if I'd be mounting them up on an Ulfbehrt, but for Grendel they do just fine. Aero has the 34mm SPRs are on sale for $70 shipped, so I bit the bullet and used the $$ I could have spent on more expensive rings towards an Atlas 170S with lever for $245 shipped from Sportsmans Guide with their Double Member Discount

    It's the offseason. It's snowing. Put my lower together today. LMOS carrier and silent capture spring arrived from JP but still waiting on the barrel. Figured I'd loosely screw on the handguard and scope to see how she's going to look

    Looks like most of this thread was lost in the outage. It's clear that this barrel and its new pet load (as of this afternoon) are far better than me.

    5 shots at about 0.3" done rapid fire (thanks LR1955 for advising me to pick up my pace!)

    The first 3 are about 0.1". Then I paused in disbelief and got back to my old tricks

    2 MOA steel from 360-750 were sitting ducks. 3 of 5 on 18" at 900 tossing it up onto hillside with a variable 8-12 mph crosswind lacking indicators

    Where did the meme that CFE223 is temperature sensitive start?

    Great looking rig!
    And looks like it shooting very consistent across many different loads and powders.

    Despite the absurd SDs with AR Comp, all 4 sets I did yesterday came in at 3/4" to 7/8" with no patterning. When it became apparent that the CFE load was "the one" i actually let someone else (gasp) shoot the remaining 10 ARCs I had made. I think the ARC is going to be tried next in the 22 Nosler. I got the 70 gr RDFs going up to 3050 with CFE but the variance wasn't there. Won't have the case fill issues with 22 Nosler and maybe the cool burning will help with the case head abuse.

    Glad to see your JP is shooting great. I've still only been able to make it once with mine, with less than optimal results, but I was shooting 123 SST. Will be trying the Hornady Blacks next.
